Back in January when I was in the throes of my “tone quest” I tried a BBE Green Screamer pedal (thanks to my friendly local guitar shop). It is a really good TS808 clone. I liked it. I liked it a lot, but couldn’t justify the price.
While wasting time on craigslist I saw a used one for a very reasonable price…and I am very tempted to get it. But I’m not going to. Since my tone quest, I have only played through my pedalboard a handful of times.
I’ve written about this many times, but I’m curious how you make gear purchase decisions. Is it just a question of what you want more? A method to prioritize what you want? I’m curious. Does it change over time?
